have read in the last decade was this quote from virginia muslims who recruited by the taliban were arrested in pakistan before they could do that. one of them said we're not terrorists, we are jihad tests. adests. we need to organize an international effort to buttress norms against the killing of civilians on any pretext. i would go for a fifth camp geneva convention. i think we need to codify the new rules of war and define terrorism as crimes against humanity. by way of taking some of the revolutionary glamour out of the jihad and putting faces on the victim's and creating a legal basis of the people who recruit suicide bombers and plan the attacks. this does not require any sophisticated theological knowledge on the part of the united states. we would simply be showing solidarity for the victims. thanks.

the virginia class submarines? it is not clear from this, but a target number of 15 ships per year. a third area of difference, and the water is a little more murky on this, is the drawdown in afghanistan. the president has set the time line for 2014. it is not entirely clear what that means in 2014 -- how many jobs will be left, but it seems, is anything in an obama second term, there might be an incentive to accelerate the drop down. not move the time line up, but the move lower, so that we drop to a lower number of hot troops in afghanistan in 2014 and beyond. romney has criticized the plan. setting a date of 2014 and the fact that we are already starting to drawdown forces in afghanistan today. that implies that romney would slow the drawdown, but i have not seen any specifics about what he would do. and of course, the obama campaign is quick to mention that brahney did not mention afghanistan at all -- romney did not mention afghanistan at all during his convention speech. i think it highlights that there is not a major area of disagreement between them, not one that they want to highl

todd akin. >> i think there are races were that model sets better. in virginia, it has been a tight election state. there were 75 public polls and all but 10 of them have been within the margin of error . when you look at independent women in the suburbs of washington d.c. and richmond, these folks will be turned off, not just by the economic model but also george allen is in favor of outlying choice -- outlawing choice. reaching out to women and maximizing our vote with that african-americans and continued to grow our party withstanding voters will be key for the presidential but the senate races. >> other than virginia? >> that is the most solid example but you look at the suburbs of st. louis, in missouri, and the suburbs of kansas city. i would throw in the suburbs of indianapolis. the movement in the race fromevan bayh is almost entirely white, independent women in the suburbs of indianapolis. i think we have a candidate who could return to those folks in a meaningful way. >> we did the same panel down in tampa where your counterpart suggested the redistricting means republican
